Ways to get manure stains out

I have a show this Saturday, my mare has lovely manure stains all over that refuse to come out.

I used Cowboy Magic Green Spot Remover..that stuff did nothing except make me mad. I also bathed her with Vetroline White and Bright for the last show, and it never removed the giant spot.

So my sister and I were bouncing around ideas to get the stain out. We thought about baby wipes, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, or baby oil.

I was just wondering if anyone has any success with any of these, if any would be harmful, or if there is something better I can try.

I use quik silver shampoo or bluing shampoo [for white haired people] I find both work really well !

If you want to use baby powder you can put it on the coat after the horse has been bathed and dried so if there is still some yellow/green you can cover it up.

A true stain on a long winter coat is next to impossible to get off.

Elbow grease and rubbing alcohol work well. More elbow grease than rubbing alcohol.

I've tried quik silver and the blue shampoo. It doesn't work. I Also use baby powder. It kind of helps. I also want to avoid bathing her, because it's cold and she was mad last time a gave her a bath.

I did think about rubbing alcohol. I thought it might be too harsh though. I'll try it. She also has it on her face and I don't want to put alcohol that close to her eye. Maybe I can try something else on her face.

I always put the alcohol onto a rag and rub the rag.

And yes, rubbing alcohol will dry out the skin.

Really? It didn't work for me. It just left a soapy wet spot

Your husband probably puts a little more elbow grease into it.

There is no way to get winter stains out with out working at it.

One application never does the trick.
